Freight condition type-With respect to kilometer

Hi,

I am working on freight related condition type,my requirement is we have to calculate freight cost based on kilometer or miles.But for us the standard condition type is KF00 which is with respect to Gross Weight.

Is there any condition type which calculates Freight based on miles/kilometer covered.If so kindly throw some ideas on it.

My doubt is do we require transportation management.

    Hi Pradeep,

    without transport management, maybe you need a different approach of calculating freight.

    instead of calculating price per Km/Mile by distance, apply cost based on origin - destination of you sold-to and ship-to.

    You know Price per km/Mile. You can ask distance between origin and destination points and calculate freight cost then.

    The important point here is to determine the different origins and destinations, refine, group, regroup to end in something that may look like:

    Origin: country-state-region-city-zip code... (and even sold-to)

    Destination: country-state-region-city-zip code ... (and even ship-to)

    Freigth cost: (unit cost x distance)

    Once you´ve mapped this in an Excel file, you can think of creating a price condition for your freight costs in SAP based on your mapping.

    Regards,

      I did not understand all these.

      So i decided to do like this,one condition type which will calculate freight based on Gross weight.

      One more condition we will enter no of kilometer required to dispatch the material.

      Suppose Rs 10/- is per tonnage,my gross weight is 8 ton,then is Rs 80/-.

      Then 8 Km is the distance,then 80x8=Rs 640/-.

      We have developed a routine and assigned alternate calculation type to my freight condition type with kilometer.This 8 km distance we have to enter manually at condition level.

    Copy this standard condition type, change the Calculation type to "R" and retry the process.
